Six picks so far for Sage Rosenfels

NFL_rosenfels.jpgDuring offseason workouts, Vikings quarterback Sage Rosenfels appeared to disappear from the depth chart, getting limited reps.

As it turns out, there are worse things than getting limited reps in the offseason.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune points out that Rosenfels threw six interceptions between Saturday night and Sunday practices.  A seventh was dropped by linebacker Heath Farwell.

With many league observers believing that Rosenfels could be traded once Brett Favre shows up, the Vikings’ potential return for Rosenfels will drop dramatically if he continues to imitate Jake Delhomme in training camp.

    Florio whines:
    “…once Brett Favre shows up, the Vikings’ potential return for Rosenfels will drop dramatically if he continues to imitate Jake Delhomme in training camp.”
    ————–
    You’re wrong, Florio (but you’ve never heard THAT before).
    Sage is doing a perfect Favre imitation…

    Brett Favre the hero!!!

    Maybe Sage’s jersey should be the one in the Vikes’ store bargain bin.

  4. Dbellina says: Aug 2, 2010 9:55 AM

    I don’t even know why we signed Rosencopter in the first place.

    NO might be in the market for a starter come week 2.
    What goes around comes around.

    He has nto thrown one in the championship game..aka his lordiness done that twice!

  8. JimmySmith says: Aug 2, 2010 10:14 AM

    It is only training camp so Sage has a way to go (career int’s 29) to catch up to the NFL leader, Favre with 317
    Its not so much the number, 317, but the timing. As they say in booth, this isn’t Detroit. But if Favre should choose to retire, it is one step closer.

  9. Fonetik says: Aug 2, 2010 10:14 AM

    Who the hell would trade for Rosenfels?

  10. mike says: Aug 2, 2010 10:25 AM

    So Basically if Favre doesn’t come back the queens are screwed? Nothing like all or nothing

  11. R.A.K. says: Aug 2, 2010 10:57 AM

    And some actually questioned the Texans’ decision to get rid of Sage!! It seems like the Vikings should maybe consider drafting a “Quarterback of the Future” sooner rather than later…Brett maybe has 1-2 (being generous) good seasons left before his age catches up to him. Everyone knows Sage isn’t starting QB material. The Vikings don’t seem to be sold on T. Jackson either. It would be a shame if their talented wide receivers and tight end didn’t have a good QB throwing to them.

  12. Walleyeman says: Aug 2, 2010 10:57 AM

    At least its at the beginning of training camp and not at the end of the season like Favres.

  13. Mrsteve says: Aug 2, 2010 11:01 AM

    Jimmy Smith claims to hate the Vikings & pouts off that the Bears are really the Packers rivals then proceeds to comment on every single Vikings article. Not just one but all of them and he says the exact same thing.
    Instead of embracing the fact that Farve isn’t in camp yet & that he can get more reps, Rosenfels is letting his mind wander and it’s effecting his play. His aggressiveness is telling because he forces the ball but also stares down the receiver. The guy throws a great deep ball though.

    27>18, Florio should start using Cutler to slag guys for INTs.
    Guess Florio had trouble with math in school? :D

  16. alphamail says: Aug 2, 2010 11:49 AM

    Now we know why Favre skips training camp.
    If he gave coaches a glimpse of INTs to come, he’d be traded in a heartbeat. That is, if the front office has any brains…hmmm.

  17. Ambrose says: Aug 2, 2010 11:53 AM

    I don’t care how many times we are told that “it doesn’t matter”, “he earned the right to take his time,” “the coaches are unconcerend over his absence,” …..Favre is mucking up this team. Their shot at infamy was last year, and it didn’t work out. They are hoping that lightning will strike twice in the same place. I don’t see it happening. Even if he does come back, he won’t be the same as his “best year ever.” What are the odds of that happening? The fans are going to come down on him hard if he fails (we know he’s coming back!) When he fails, he’ll become “that SOB ex-Packer” faster than you can say “maybe next year.”

    Could you have just ONE post without any of your wishful hoping conjecture in it?
    You senile bitter old POS you.
    Jesus, i haven’t seen anyone cry and piss and moan this much since….never.
    Everyone gets it. You say you are over the whole favre thing, but it’s obvious you aren’t. All day, every day, you are on here pissing and moaning about Favre.
    Get out and do something with yourself, hell, i bet Pervy would take you fishing.
    You really need to quit dwelling on this.

  21. Green n' Gold says: Aug 2, 2010 12:23 PM

    What do you expect? They’re learning to throw picks from the master himself, Diva Favre.

  22. vikes backer says: Aug 2, 2010 12:25 PM

    Get rid of sage! Favre, t-jack, and web will be all they need this season to win the super bowl!

  23. nowathand says: Aug 2, 2010 12:32 PM

    I personally guarantee that if Jake Delhomme starts all 16 games, he won’t even be in the top 3 for interceptions.
    This is because, unlike Florio, I found a cause for his interceptions. Jake had had Tommy John surgery prior to this past season.

    good luck with that, i don’t think he’s missed a start in what 18 years? but more importantly, do you see any connection between your seething hatred for a football player and your general unhappiness in life??

  28. Supersuckers says: Aug 2, 2010 1:24 PM

    6 picks? WOW!! Good Favre imitation though..
    A man met a fairy that granted him one wish. “I want to live forever, ” he said.
    “Sorry” said the fairy, “I’m not allowed to grant wishes like that.”
    “Fine,” the man said, “I want to die after the Vikings win the Super
    Bowl!”
    “You crafty b@stard,” said the fairy.

  29. DrewPuzia2 says: Aug 2, 2010 1:30 PM

    Now, and not when (and I do say when) Brett Favre returns this is the optimum time to trade Sage. He does not want to be a third string QB, it is time to make a move. I would try to couple him with a draft pick or two and get a much needed offensive lineman. Hey what the heck talk to the Patriots about Logan.

  30. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fat says: Aug 2, 2010 1:37 PM

    what is torturing packer fans is not just the huge success favre has had since leaving the packers (2nd highest qb rating, 3rd in mvp voting) and it’s not just that he beat the packers twice, won the division (pretty much ensuring that the packers as a wildcard road team would continue the trend of no playoff wins since favre left).
    what’s torturing them is not just the favre curse that they sense they’ve been witnessing their franchise endure since favre left. it’s all those things and the fact that vikings fans love favre, which is just one more level of torture they feel every time they hear favre’s name.
    but rciv is right, the rage and bitterness you’re expressing every day has to be pretty much ruining your lives as football fans not to mention your lives outside of football. try to remember, favre didn’t decide to keep playing ball just to inflict all the pain and suffering you’re feeling. he just wanted to keep playing.

  31. vikings=worstfranchiseandfans says: Aug 2, 2010 1:48 PM

    This is not Detroit man, this is … well … it is Minnesota and this stuff happens all the time.

  32. alphamail says: Aug 2, 2010 3:14 PM

    “what is torturing packer fans is not just the huge success favre has had since leaving the packers (2nd highest qb rating, 3rd in mvp voting)”
    Let’s see, how does NFCC game loss stack up against 16 memorable, Viking-beating seasons, 3 MVPs, and one Lombardi Trophy? Yeah, 12-4, it was a good year, great job.
    ” and it’s not just that he beat the packers twice, won the division (pretty much ensuring that the packers as a wildcard road team would continue the trend of no playoff wins since favre left).”
    Please. Favre has beaten the Packers MORE than twice. You can start with 2007 NFC Championship game vs. NY Giants and work your way backwards….old hat my friend.
    “what’s torturing them is not just the favre curse that they sense they’ve been witnessing their franchise endure since favre left.””
    What curse? The Replacing Favre with Solid Young QB Contingency Plan Curse? The 11-5/playoff berth curse? The Competent Front Office/Head Coach That Wasn’t Willing To Put Up with Diva Behavior Curse? The Our Team Won’t Move to LA in 2011 Curse?
    Or is it the Getting to Watch Favre Kill the Vikings’ Season Curse?
    If this is what a curse feels like, then what Ring of Hell qualifies as Viking fandom….
    “it’s all those things and the fact that vikings fans love favre, which is just one more level of torture they feel every time they hear favre’s name.”
    We love that you love Favre. Take him – he’s your sloppy seconds. You’re like the beta loser in H.S. finally getting with the head cheerleader after she popped out some burnout’s kids and gained 50 lbs. (Or, every Minnesota female above 17.) Enjoy.

    ———————————————
    Wake up my newly Favre’d friend. Favre never decided to KEEP playing ball…he never decided to STOP playing ball. There’s a difference. Once he wanted to go out ala Elway, he thought the Vikings were his ticket (not his own teammates…not his own team,) and his failed attempt to get an outright release from the Packers (by “fooling” them) created an unanticipated one year delay in finally getting to Minnesota. He’s in it for him (and the longevity record.) You will eventually hate him, not only for hoodwinking you, but for being an ex-Packer in the first place.

  35. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fat says: Aug 2, 2010 4:38 PM

    “You will eventually hate him, not only for hoodwinking you, but for being an ex-Packer in the first place.”
    won’t happen. everyone i know loved watching him play last season, he is so fukin talented and has so much fun on the field. and when he plays his last game i guarantee vikings fans will be nothing but grateful for the time we had him.
    but ambrose, i don’t necessarily disagree that favre wanted to come to the vikings because he felt he’d have a better shot at another ring with them but don’t you think that his first wish would’ve been to stay with the packers if he felt that thompson would have been willing to sign some players to put the packers over the top?

  36. rcunningham says: Aug 2, 2010 6:03 PM

    I love how people act like Favre threw 30 interceptions last year, yet he only threw 7…

  37. sand0 says: Aug 2, 2010 6:25 PM

    Thinking about this article and I’m actually happy that my defense picked off a QB we are about to release or trade 6 times. I mean, we might have went from 6th round pick to 7th round pick for him but hey at least our top draft pick had two of the INT’s.

  38. PurpleRaid12 says: Aug 2, 2010 6:47 PM

    And according to Bob Nelson, six ‘pricks’ for JimmySmith.

    Yes, he may have been willing to stick with the Packers if they surrounded him with better talent. But the manner in which he dicked them around for three straight years while trying to dictate exactly who the Packers should be going after, caused him to wear out his welcome. He knew exactly what he was doing, don’t let him kid you.
